When I was driving my friend Kyle home after a somewhat disappointing hike, I nearly ran over some wild turkeys.
“WHAT!” I cried.
“They’re turkeys,” said Kyle.
I stopped the car in the middle of the road and grabbed my camera from the backseat.
“Are you serious,” Kyle deadpanned.
“They’re WILD TURKEYS!!! I’ve seen wild turkeys like three times!”
“Dude, they live in the woods. They’re as common as sparrows.”
“Not to me!”
Kyle sat there in patient disbelief as I kept shooting pictures of these stupid birds.
“…In the spring, they have babies, and they’re kind of cute,” he conceded.
Anyway— Happy Thanksgiving, if you’re in the U.S. and you celebrate. 🙂
